Powder Room Update ORC Week 4
Its Thursday! It’s time for an ORC dual powder room update! Today I am reminded just how delicate the art of compromise is, The ORC Week 4 had to be flexible.
Ready for a dual powder room update? I’m ready to share it with you! We have had some victories and a couple of setbacks but that is all part of this great event called the One Room Challenge.
So I shared last week that the fun rug for the downstairs powder had come in. Well, this week I decided to take it out of the packaging because we are so close to being finished with this room. To my dismay, the rug doesn’t work as I had hoped. So, back to the drawing board, we go.
Then, the light that I ordered showed up as a fan… I kid you not. It’s a pretty fan but it isn’t the vanity light I so desperately need to wrap this space up. Thankfully Wayfair was super great about it and I should have the vanity light any day now.
Now for the Upstairs Powder Room update:
Ok, here is where we begin the dance of compromise. After some soul searching… the design had to become more budget-friendly. Nothing wrong with being more frugal.
So instead of :
We are going with this:
We are talking a $500 savings and without sponsors for this challenge… well ya gotta do what ya gotta do. I think it’s going to look beautiful.
While we are at it, the budget winced at the idea of a new countertop and toilet.
So instead of this…
We are keeping the original toilet and adding this…
And adding this to the original sink…
I am still hunting for the burled wood but may end up going with a beautiful piece of walnut. Patience is a virtue… I hear.
The Hale Navy by the way is spectacular!! I will show you a sneak peek on instagram soon along with my cabinet pull update.
Less than two weeks away from the big reveal! Can you believe it?!? I can’t!
Catch up here: Week 1 // Week2 // Week 3

Til Later my friends – fingers crossed!
loving your choices! and stop scaring me with this less than two weeks talk…. pppfffft. 😉
I hear you! I don’t have any sponsors either, so I ended up going with $7 sheer curtains. 🙂 I’m sure your bathroom will still look lovely!
Love the toilet hardware! It’s soooo pretty!
I love your new selections Joy!!! Gosh…if only we didn’t have to live within a budget!!! 🙂 I think the space is going to be just as beautiful without the added expenses. Now that is a win-win!!!
Joy…would that our leaders learn the art of compromise like you did…maybe you can head to Washington and give them a quick tutorial. But…your compromises are very lovely and I think the end result will still be spectacular. Looking forward to that Hale Navy sneak preview.
Hugs and wishes for a productive week.
Great ideas! No need to change a toilet when you can improve it with a handle. Seriously, who studies toilets for their beauty?
It is still going to turn out beautifully!
I’m I am blown away by the idea that you can replace a toilet handle with something so pretty! That is amazing and I never would have thought of it!
I like that tile better, it is a little more timeless I think. Good luck!
Patience is a virtue. Don’t give up hope…burled would be an amazing compliment to your brass accents.
Totally understand $500 in savings! Plus I really like the new budget-friendly tile you selected too!
Joy, I honestly didn’t know you can change the handle on a toilet! I learn something new all the time. Sad to hear about the downstairs powder room, but I know it will all turn out just perfect, and I can’t wait to see the final reveal for both rooms.
Gorgeous choices, you did good with savings. I am a lover of white and whatever else you will be adding its going to all look amazing.
I love the hex tile! I used the same tile in my master bath. Although I also love your pricier choice, I think the hex tiles are more timeless. I’m so in awe of the bloggers taking on bathroom projects!
changes big and small have such an impact. Looking forward to seeing the final outcome 🙂
A gold toilet handle?! im dying.
Beautiful selections! I know it’s hard to compromise (love the title of your post by the way), but I think you did it flawlessly and I can’t wait to see the end result!
Hale Navy and gold are two of my favorite things! I can’t wait to see the final results.
I love the gold accents! I also am using the hexagon tile in our bathroom renovation and love how it looks!
